Gamers should keep in mind that installation of modding is crucial to run the server without any disturbances. Read on to know more about MetaMod and SourceMod and how to install them for CS:GO host servers.

Installing SourceMod

Since the installation of MetaMod is complete, CS:GO serverscan now run the SourceMod. This helps in the server being more flexible, allowing for the installation of more plugins and mods. For this, the gamer must ensure to download the SourceMod files.

  • Download the updated version of the SourceMod.
  • The downloaded files will be in a zipped file which will have the cfg and AddOn files. Extract the files and save them on to the desktop.
  • Locate the Server Directory by using the FTP client or go to local disc.
  • Move the mid folder to the game Server Directory. Note that there will now be three files on the AddOn folder.
  • Lastly, the gamer will have to edit MetaMod’s .ini file in order to run the SourceMod. For this, find the file in the MetaMod folder and open it with a text editor. Insert the text ‘addons/sourcemod/bins/sourcemod_mm’ at the end of the document.
  • Restarting the server will allow for SourceMod to run.

Installing MetaMod

MetaMod is a necessary plugin mod built for the half-life engine. This vibrant tool allows the engine to run with mod plugins and AddOns. Listed below are some of the instructions for installing MetaMod on CS: GO host servers:

  • The first thing a gamer needs to do is to download the up-to-date version of MetaMod: Source. Make note that the game and servers also need updating before installation of MetaMod.
  • Since the downloaded files will be in a zipped file, the second step during installation is to extract the zipped file and save it. Gamers can save the folder to the desktop. The file must have an ‘AddOn’ folder upon saving it in a new folder.
  • The third step is to find out the location of the server directory. This is the location of storage for addons. If the server is a private server, a gamer will have to use an FTP client to run and open the directory.
  • The fourth step of installing MetaMod is the generation of a VDF file for the game with the provided link. A gamer simply needs to select ‘Game’ option and then click on the ‘generate metaMod.VDF’ option. After this, the file will download on its own.  One needs to make sure that the file is working by running it with MS Word or Notepad to ensure that the text is correct.
  • Finally, the last step is moving the mod to the AddOn folder after which one needs to restart the server.

Avoiding errors and how to fix them

Following the instructions mentioned above to the T will ensure that there are no errors of any sort. However, if an error occurs, the reason could be that there were some mistakes while downloading the file. To avoid mistakes-

  • Ensure that while downloading, both the mod files are compatible versions.
  • Ensure that the file is not corrupted or not missing any data.
  • Ensure not to skip the creation of the .vdf file without making any changed to the script.
  • Ensure that nothing is changed in the .ini file of MetaMod while editing the .vdf file.

In case the files still do not run, causing the server to freeze, try and reinstall the server. Make sure to clear the slate before the reinstallation process.
